Lake Guntersville State Park’s Eagle Awareness Provides Great Winter Recreation Opportunity and Celebrates Conservation Success Story
This state park in Alabama is taking Eagle awareness seriously.
“About 50 years ago, only 480 nesting pairs of bald eagles were left in the United States, with the last nest in Alabama documented in 1962. Thankfully, a great deal has changed since then, and so many eagles winter in our state that the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) has a hard time counting them.
To celebrate the remarkable recovery of our nation’s emblem, Alabama State Parks will again host Eagle Awareness Weekends at Lake Guntersville State Park. The three-day 2023 events are scheduled for January 20-22, January 27-29, and February 3-5.
Greg Lein, Alabama State Parks Director, said packages are available for those who wish to attend the Eagle Awareness Weekends that include lodging, two breakfasts, one dinner, a welcome packet, VIP access to presentations from experts in eagles and other raptors, discounts at the restaurant and gift shop, and photo excursions around one of Alabama’s most beautiful state parks. Lein suggests making reservations as soon as possible.
“Our lodge, campground, and chalets often fill up quickly for these weekends, so we encourage people to make reservations and join us at Lake Guntersville State Park for what we believe will be another amazing year of Eagle Awareness Weekends,” Lein said.”
